Bunion correction is surgery used to treat a bunion that has formed on the big or little toe. A bunion is a bump at the toe joint that represents abnormal bone or tissue formation, sometimes resulting from rheumatoid arthritis of the foot and ankle. The misalignment can cause the toe to move outward and cross over the adjacent toe. This also results in inflammation, swelling and pain in the joint of the affected toe. The goal of bunion correction surgery is to relieve pain and correct deformity.

Robotic surgery is a minimally invasive alternative to traditional surgery that uses robotic arms to control superfine tools through small incisions. It can be used to treat many types of cancer.
A cardiac computed tomography (CT) scan uses X-rays and a computer to create a 3-D image of the heart and its blood vessels. Here’s what you need to know about how cardiac CT works and how to prepare.
Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a noninvasive, painless imaging technology that produces extremely detailed pictures of the heart and blood vessels. It uses a large magnet, radio waves and a computer, but no X-ray radiation. Here is what you need to know about how it works, what to expect from your exam and how to prepare.
